So, this is more along the lines of what was going through my mind when I was asked to do a MOC for NCS month.
Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I went with the Seraph, but it's not exactly swoosh friendly. It can be swooshed, but the wings get in the way and tend to bump into things. Plus it's a pain to just set somewhere, as something ends up getting bent out of whack.
This is more my speed. Simple landing gear, relatively tough, and not too terrible to look at.
The Seraph is definitely much more visually interesting, but this is the one to swoosh.
